As part as Swindon Open Studios, Derek exhibited at Pat Elmore’s sculpture garden at Nutford Lodge in Longcot (Sat Nav postcode SN7 7TW).
Derek produced some new abstract Fine Art images using the “Bokeh” technique and selected about 50 of his favourites. He exhibited some large (over 1 metre wide) images from the “Invisible Beauty” series. Derek pointed out: “This type of printing really suits these abstract images. They are lightweight, durable, and even waterproof, which means you can hang them almost anywhere.”

Derek commented on his blog: “The weather was great on the Saturday, and it looked more like the Med than Oxfordshire!” While going around Pat’s garden, Derek took some stunning photographs that you can see in his blog article “Making an exhibition of myself ".
During the week-end, he had lots of interest in his Fine Art abstract images printed on aluminium.
One of Derek’s photographs is still exhibited in The Arts Centre, Devizes Road, Swindon until the end of October.
